this earlier today. what's your take on the obama administration's signal here to the bankers? >> in a sense it's an amazing political pick in that the obama administration is banking on the idea that the elite media and politicians will see the word prosecutor in mary jo white's resume and say that means she must be tough on crime forget that she hasn't been a prosecutor for a decade and has been defending the biggest most powerful wall street c.e.o.'s in the country. politically, it's banking on voters, on the elite media simply not knowing who she really is. i think as a citizen as somebody concerned with the fact that the administration hasn't prosecuted a single wall street banker connected to the financial crisis, i think this is a terrible pick. i think wall street is celebrating right now saying the person who's in in the s.c.c. looks like she's going to get tough on us, but we know she has a record of defending our interest. >> >> cenk: the new york times explains she's not going to face much opposition from the republicans. >> shocking. >> cenk: michael david and i are clear on this.
